I have a early 6.0 that will not start cranks and puffs smoke and almost wants to start but it will not start. I hooked the scanner up today and got po113 iat circuit high input ,injectors 1-8 circuit low po261, po275 cyc 5 contribution / balance fault, po341 cam position sensor circuit performance, and p132b turbo charge boost control a perfromance the ficm has 47 volts but as soon as the truck is crancked the ficm voltage just keeps dropping was down to about 32v while cranking . batterys were a little weak but the truck is stuck on a jobsite so i wasnt able to give them a charge . high pressure oil was up to 1500psi plus while cranking so i know the injectors are getting oil . i think that the ficm went and this is a good place to start but i would like to get some other peoples thoughts on this before i go spending money on the wrong parts. any help would be greats thanks

Sounds like a Ficm to me. Load test batteries and have the alternator checked. That is a good start. You might want to pull your turbo and clean it as well. You can get a turbo cleaning kit at tousley ford online, it has everything you need.

Your ficm is shot. You need to charge your batteries and have them load tested. If they are bad, they will damage the next ficm you install. Ficmrepair.com

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Ed at ficmrepair.com

The 58V coolaid thing is up to you.
Like the kool-aid comment,if you want to do anything to your ficm get a php tune that will do something for you, economy tune/atlas40 great for non studded, atlas80 or the hrecules tune is great if you have a studded engine and want more power.
58 volts is hokis pokis.lol

If your handy at soldering and have a good soldering iron you can probably fix it yourself. There are articles on how to fix them.
If any of the .0075 resistors are burnt you will have to get new ones.

If not ficmrepair.com is your best way to go, he has a great reputation with his ficm services.

I just had my FICM repaired by FICMrepair and they were great to deal with. He got my FICM on a Monday afternoon and had it repaired and on the way back the next day. I went with the $325 service for the two year warranty and because Ed said they are using better than OEM components with that. The FICM I took out of my 03 was dated 2008, so I figured it would be a good idea to at least try to upgrade. On the website, they state that they do not do the 58 volt upgrade anymore because they have seen a few failures. That's one of the reasons I went with them, I get a better feeling dealing with someone that would rather not charge me for extra work that could cause a problem later on.

I also did his ecotune for another $150 and am really happy with it. It does not add power, but it feels much quicker now due to the reduced turbo lag. I can't speak to the improved MPG as I just got it installed, but any improvement in that area would be welcome.

When I tested my unit, I was getting 48.5 volts with the key on and 18-20 with key on and cranking the motor. My truck would not start at all. I popped in the repaired FICM and it started right up.
